Description

This is the first one of eight sections! After getting off at Dobongsan Station, you head east. There is a big information center that can get you a map and stamp book to collect stamps along the route. This is the "Mountain Course" variation of this, not the "Town Course". It adds some much steeper terrain and significant distance, but in my opinion this is the proper way to do Section 1. This trail is generally easy to follow, using the orange ribbons and Seoul Trail markers along the way.

This is about average for trail difficulty, maybe even on the difficult side because it isn't paved.
